Hi,

I have a Greater White- Fronted Goose at a pond in a Park near my house and I was going to go to the park tomorrow and was wondering if it might still be there.

Thanks,
Shoveler26

They migrate at night a lot. You can hear Canada geese and tundra swans at night during migration.

If he likes your park, he might take up residency there. This one moved in to my local Lindo Lake Park at least five years ago, and is still there.

According to my ibird app, the Pied-billed Grebe only migrates at night, which may explain why I have never seen one in the air at all.
